  1. Okay then all my questions have been answered. Thanks!
  2. Thanks for the fast replies. I'll look into the fitted mesh content but I'd still like to know about the mesh deformer if that is an option.
  3. Is there a way to put physics on mesh breasts such as the creatable physics for the default body? I know that Lolas have some kind of physics but they are rather bad and not as responsive to movements. The other solution I got when I was searching is a "mesh deformer" but there was no real explonation nor something that tells where to get such a thing.
  4. Well, it will just be for myself if it's nothing more than coloring. I'll look into these and then decide what I'm capable of. Thanks!
  5. I'm thinking about making clothes or atleast learning to change textures on existing ones. All I know is that little basic info the wiki offers. Are there any good guides / tutorials? And if I decide to "just" color clothes, which are allowed to be used for that?
  6. Good. I just found the in-game store which seems much better and bigger than what is offered in his marketplace. Either that or the thumbnails are less appealing.
  7. *sigh* Is the creator still active so that I could contact him somehow or are they lost forever?
  8. I keep finding so called "truth" hairs that seem to exist nowhere. And what about this store: https://marketplace.secondlife.com/p/TRUTH-Kalista-Streaked-cherry/5023234 Are these "stolen" hairs or am I mixing things up? Anyways, here are the truth hairs I was looking for and can't find: Truth Reese http://sweetdebkips.files.wordpress.com/2010/03/comme-des-fleurs-in-pink.png Truth Sienna http://sweetdebkips.files.wordpress.com/2010/03/new-truth-hair-sienna-2.png Truth Nahla http://kittywitch.files.wordpress.com/2011/02/double-bob.jpg
  9. Thanks everyone! Yesterday someone showed me around a bit, taught me stuff and gathered free stuff so things are much clearer now. I guess I slowly understand the basics now but anyone that is willing to answer some direct questions / give me their opinion on things: it's still appreciated to IM me. If I urgently need help with something again I'll make another thread.

As far as what kind of avatar I prefer, that depends on your goal. If you're portraying a reasonably fit adult human I'd prefer the traditional avatar as it has many more options available for it. The big problem is at extreme slider values it starts looking like a string bag full of onions. There are many, many things other than a human that you can be in SL but you'll usually have to buy an appropriate avatar from a merchant and that can get technical and confusing (yes, it gets worse.) I'd advise you to start looking around the "world" and seeing what kind of avatar appeals to you - i.e. you could be a cell-animated pony if it strikes your fancy. Once you get an idea of what you want to be it will be easier to help you get there. Heh. I was expecting one-liners with links to Google and the wiki so I have to thank you for all the help. I'm not used to such great support. Though I don't mind "silly" avatars my goal is definitely to be an adult female for now. I don't know whats extreme for you but I think that won't be that much of a problem for me. How much would it cost to have a decent avatar with everything approximately? And before I load myself with demos: I assume I can delete them once their purpose is done? Tomorrow I'll take another look and maybe have some products that interest me to give a better idea what I'm looking for. hollowgirl78 wrote: I will IM you tomorrow since I will not be on today but to I'm someone click on search and then type in my name. Here is a list http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Third_Party_Viewer_Directory Thanks! Are there any downsides when using a third party viewer? Some products say stuff like "must have second life viewer" or something like that. Either way I'll check them out since the original interface is one of the things that confuse me the most.
  11. First of all thanks for all the amazing replies. Also, I hope I don't mess up the quotes. KlistiesSeMio Ewinaga wrote: My advice to you is this: do not wear the new mesh avatar shapes right now. Right click in your inventory and hit "Create new shape" and you'll be able to make your own from scratch. How do I know what shape I'm wearing? So it's not really the question if the body (shape) is compatible but about making it fit? I'll look into it. Is there a difference between items obtained in the market and the ones in-game? It seems some things are only available in-game. hollowgirl78 wrote: You can always IM me and I will try to walk you through making your look your own. That would probably be the best with my amount of questions. Though I wouldn't know how since all the tutorial says is right-click people and select IM. Theresa Tennyson wrote: ... when a "standard sizing" initiative by clothing makers made finding properly-fitting mesh clothing easier. To minimize the gap between the parts and the rest of the mesh you can try to have the exact same texture of your skin used to cover these new parts. This is done using SKIN APPLIERS made by skin makers. Appliers are specific for brands of body parts. This is done by CLOTHING APPLIERS which are made by clothing makers and also need to be used with specific body part brands. I'd recommend not even thinking about new body parts for a while until you get your head around other aspects of SL. That was very helpful / confusing. So... how do I find properly fitting mesh clothing easier? Or was that irrelevant for me in specific? What exactly are skin appliers and how can I use them? Clothing appliers... I can't quite follow with all this applying stuff to be honest. Which body type (original or mesh body) do you prefer and why? Once I figure out the creation / editing of shapes many things will probably make more sense. What else should I "get my head around" then?
  12. Hi, I'm new and don't really understand all the these compatibilities between clothes, skins, shape, bodyparts, etc. I've looked everywhere for guides but all the info seems outdated, isn't good enough or just doesn't answer my questions. What are the steps when purchasing a body, which requirements do I need to take care of? Are skins the entire body or parts such as face, upper and lower body? What are attachments compared to the other parts and how do I know which are compatible? So pretty much all the avatar related things. If I'm correct these preset avatars are not working with the default body and instead "replace" it. Is that how everything else works aswell? Aren't there easier ways to manage all the avatar components? I hope someone can help me because the wiki alone won't do it.
